Saarinen’s Gateway Arch Museum undergoes revitalization

A subterranean museum below architect Eero Saarinen’s iconic arch in St Louis has been renovated and expanded by three architecture firms, as part of an effort to rejuvenate the area around the monument.

Formerly known as The Museum of Westward Expansion, the new Gateway Arch Museum was led by New York firms Cooper Robertson and James Carpenter Design Associates, with locally based Trivers Associates.

It encompassed the gut renovation of 105,800-square-foot (9,829-square-metre) existing building, alongside a 47,000-square-foot (4,366 square-metre) addition.
